I'm deciding on what new laptop to buy and, given Audiomulch is my main working space, I want to check about your experience and Ross' advice, possibly.

I remember that back in the time it was said that AM's design is concentrating all processing on a single core, my weak electronic engineering knowledge tells me the more powerful is the core the better it should perform.

Given that all processors are multi core now, I would like to know: Is an Intel Core i5 dual-core @ 2,7GHz better than an Intel Core i7 quad-core @ 2,2GHz ?

No need to talk about HD as I'm doing real time processing and no sample editing or prerecorded material.

I'm taking about Mac Book Pro, in case that matters.

Thank you !
